Adhesive can be used to improve adhesion of iron-on products, as well
as being an adhesive for ORATEX®.
Depending on the
surface, 1-2 layers should be applied. Before ironing-on
ORATEX®, the adhesive has to dry thoroughly. Ideal quantity to
be applied (dry): 20 g/m². Not suitable for surfaces which are
not solvent proof.
We produce a suitable
adhesive for every field of application, for instance to prepare wooden
surfaces for easy ironing: The liquid adhesives soak into the wood,
gluing unstable fibres closely and permanently to the surface. This
prevents the fibres tearing off under stress and the covering coming
off, which is the usual cause of wrinkles. Torn-off fibres will enter
the adhesive layer of covering films, thus preventing proper adhesion.
Also additional ironing does not really solve the problem: the covering
film shrinks all right, but the glue layer which has become mixed with
torn-off fibres can no longer properly adhere to the surface.
Our liquid adhesives are
an exact match to the adhesives used for our covering films.
Accordingly, always choose the adhesive appropriate for the covering
film you are using. The consumption of adhesive is c. 20g/sqm, relating
to dry matter. It is important to let the adhesive dry completely
before covering, to prevent incompletely evaporated solvents to
evaporate during ironing, thereby causing bubbles. In case our
adhesives have dried out a bit in an opened tin, you can restore the
original viscosity by adding the appropriate thinner.
